So, you all may remember that I entered the Shabby Apple dare to design contest a few years ago, and received an honorable mention. Well, just today, the last day to enter of course (cutting it kinda close, huh?), I found out about their latest competition: The Shabby Apple Dare to Design Contest: 1940’s.
My entry is actually based on a design that I drew a few years ago, of a pewter gray jumper trimmed with lace bands and metal buttons down the front.
I actually don’t remember, exactly, my inspiration for this design, but now I would say that it is inspired by the women factory workers of world war two. The steel gray chambray and metal buttons were inspired by the raw metal parts that the women used to build planes and machinery; and the lace reflects the femininity that those women still retained though doing such rough work.
There will be three designs chosen that will be announced on the 25th of July on Shabby Apple’s Facebook page. From there, you will be able to vote for your favorite design, and the design with the most votes wins! Voting closes on the 30th, and the winners will be announced on August 5th.
So, just a heads up in case I make it to the top three… VOTE FOR ME!!! I’ll be sure to let you all know if I make it.
The Middle Sister and Singer
P.S. the prize is that your design gets produced and sold by Shabby Apple. Cool, huh?
